I'm a student at the University of Edinburgh and am putting together an installation piece that features archive films. I was hoping to use this film, are there restrictions on its use? Cheers!

I remember seeing this retro video over a year ago during one of my early ventures onto the IA, and have been trying to find it ever since. A nostalgic memory of days gone by when peek-a-boo films were cute and sexy without becoming graphic or disgusting.

My guess is that the photographer was extremely familiar with this particular rock formation in Malibu, and when it would be high tide. I'll bet he deceptively told this lady that it would be a typical modeling job, where she would be showing off the latest strapless bikini on the beach. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if somewhere, in a dark hidden basement that time has forgotten, there are hundreds of reels of films of different women wearing this very same bikini on this very same rock formation at high tide...and I'll also bet that alot of them didn't share this woman's sense of humor, and got pretty steamed at the photographer!

If I were a young hot looking woman back then I would've been a stripper.

So tame any child, old lady could view it - If she let the sea win, even just once I would have liked it.

Did someone say this was a standard stag film? I SO disagree! Okay, maybe I'm easily impressed, but I thought that the device of the waves repeatedly removing Adele's top was a nice creative variation on the old striptease. Instead of doing the standard bump and grind, Adele lets the ocean buffet her back and forth, and even undress her. This allows her to look and act perfectly wholesome and innocent throughout. Every man likes to ogle the strippers, but he dreams about the girl next door.

I like to judge these films on their own terms, and I'm giving this one five stars, because on it's own terms, it's pretty much perfect. If Adele had performed a brilliant reading of Helena's soliloquay from A Midsummer Night's Dream, it would have detracted from the point of the film, the simple and sublime interplay between the natural forces of the ocean, a young woman's lovely face, and one magnificent pair of tits.

And now, please excuse me. I just remembered that the Totem video player for Linux has a setting for slow motion!

A bikini-clad beauty sits in the surf and lets the water repeatedly pull her bikini top off. This is done to a bouncy soundtrack that any industrial film would be proud of. Another fairly standard vintage stag film.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: **.

Subject: Watch out for the water
In this highly interesting stag film, Adele Dolman, psoes for a camera a long a rocky beach. Pity for her as the waves keep crashing into her, nearly drowning her, and always knocking her top off. Quite funny. I am quite sure the photographer didn't care. Soon after, Adele wises up amd then is photographed a bit farther away from the water. Many poses are shown, including my favorite, "Arching the neck up to get a good view of your flaring nostrils"
